WEDNESDAY 7th December 2005 8-9pm

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of (arguably) The Beatles' folkiest album Rubber Soul, Mike Harding presents a tribute from the cream of the folk music community of the British Isles.

All the artists taking part did so with a huge amount of enthusiasm, some immediately drawn to the classics from the album, others relishing the challenge of the more oblique. In each case the artist was given a completely free hand. Some interpretations are faithful, albeit acoustic versions of the original; others have taken the opportunity to give a completely new feel to the song.

From Ralph McTell's Michelle, complete with accordion and ukuleles, to June Tabor's unaccompanied rendition of In My Life, this is a remarkable collection which illustrates not only the great writing skills of The Beatles, but also the inventiveness and creativity of British folk artists.

The songs will be played on Mike's show in the same order they appear on the Beatles album:

Drive My Car - Jim Moray
Norwegian Wood - Waterson:Carthy
You Won't See Me - Paul Brady
Nowhere Man - Chris While
Think For Yourself - Coope Boyes & Simpson

What Goes On - Boo Hewerdine & Eddi Reader
Girl - John Tams
I'm Looking Through You - Martin Simpson
In My Life - June Tabor
